Publishing Ethics

Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas.

1)  All manuscripts are committed to publishing only original materials, which has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will incur plagiarism sanctions.
2)  Manuscripts that are found to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere, will incur duplicate submission/publication sanctions. If authors have used their own previously published work, or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, they are required to cite the previous work and indicate how their submitted manuscript offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.
3)  Submitted manuscripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images, will incur data fabrication and falsification sanctions.
4)  Submitted manuscripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, will incur citation manipulation sanctions.
5)  All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all its claims.
6)  Redundant publications involve the inappropriate division of study outcomes into several manuscripts.
7)  The following sanctions will be applied:- Immediate rejection of the infringing manuscript.
  • - Immediate rejection of every other manuscript submitted to JMMP by any of the authors of infringing manuscript.
  • - Prohibition against all of the authors from serving on the Editorial Board on JMMP.
